What it is about:

Revolver Rani is set in the hostile territory of Chambal and follows the life of a political leader Alka Singh (Kangana Ranaut). Against a backdrop of politics, we come across a quirky love story based on Alka's obsession with Rohan Mehra (Vir Das), a rising star. 

Revolver Rani comes off as a tease that cops out on its kinky premise. Sai Kabir's film is bold and ambitious, it doesn't always work, but I'd rather prefer someone trying a different approach than playing it safe.

Like it or not, there's no denying that Revolver Rani is the work of an auteur; every frame is drenched in Sai's vision, even though it looked like inspired a lot from the great Quentin Tarantino. There is little compromise, and especially in the first half the film gets it right until a twist and the sob story began.

From the opening frames of the film Sai warns the audience that this isn't going to be a usual, simple Bollywood entertainer. It's the personal details, the interconnectedness of characters that allow the director to create a world we can recognize as our own, no matter how dangerous or bizarre.

Forgive the rough patches and a weak storyline, the film's concept is quite unique and thrilling. And Kangana simply lights up the screen, which will make you follow her anywhere. The film belongs to Ranaut. There's not an unfelt moment in Kangana's performance. Just watch the sublime Kangana take the role of Alka to a whole new level of ferocity and feeling, only to be let down in the end.

With the help of a supporting cast - Vir Das, Zakir Hussain and Piyush Mishra, who radiate grit and grace, Kabir has made a movie that stays inside your head long after you see it.

What to do:

Watch it for the gun-toting Kangana Ranaut!
